This textbook continues the high standards of previous editions in terms of the clarity with which it explains the technologies while offering high quality graphics. Both the range and quality of photos, tables and figures is improved. The expanded section on the key issues relating to the adoption and integration of different renewable energy technologies at greater volumes is a welcome expansion for the undergraduate or other reader who should know something about the technology's interaction with society and not just the technology. I have compared the new edition with other recent textbooks at the same level and will be continuing to recommend this one to undergraduate students. ( Peter Connor, Senior Lecturer in Renewable Energy Policy, University of Exeter)
Review from previous edition 'This is an excellent introductory text which deserves the widest readership'. ( Book Review 2004)
The provision of sustainable energy supplies for an expanding and increasingly productive world is one of the major issues facing civilisation today. Renewable Energy examines both the practical and economic potential of the renewable energy sources to meet this challenge. The underlying physical and technological principles behind deriving power from direct solar (solar thermal and photovoltaics), indirect solar (biomass, hydro, wind and wave) and non-solar (tidal and geothermal) energy sources are explained, within the context of their environmental impacts, their economics and their future prospects.
Together with its companion volume, Energy Systems and Sustainability, this book provides both perspective and detail on the relative merits and state of progress of technologies for utilizing the various 'renewables'. The analysis considers emissions, sustainability, cost implications and energy security, as political and economic pressures move society towards a low-carbon future. From an overview of basic energy conversion processes, through a discussion of the individual renewable sources, to a concluding examination of the prospects for their integration into national and international networks, this book provides a valuable insight into prospects for the renewables.
